If you need a small band with a big sound, we've got it! We're a jazz trio that shifts between jazz, funk, fusion, and many more. There isn't an event long enough to tap us out of music. We'll even travel to the surrounding NW Ohio/SE Michigan area! Our rates are negotiable and better for everyone because we're a smaller group. So, when you're deciding on a band to play at your wedding reception, cocktail party, restaurant, party, fancy sunday in the backyard, dog's birthday party, or gathering of the occult (be however extravagant you want, we won't judge) make the right choice and hire us!

Gig Length: 45 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
We set up quickly, play a setlist full of interesting takes on some classic jazz tunes and even a few originals, and go home. We're very responsive to our employers and will be glad to accommodate special requests like a mic and a little silence for an announcement, a drumroll for a raffle, a karaoke band if we know the request. You name it we'll do it with a smile. We'll show up early, doublecheck everything, and make noise only when we're asked to.
We're a jazz trio from Toledo made up of some high quality musician that are well versed in almost every form of music (this excludes Bolivian Grindcore and Electro Country). We know a lot of other very talented musicians and can morph into a dance band in the case of a wedding reception or party involving dancing. We've been individually gigging in the Toledo area for a few years now and we take what we do seriously. Among our gig experience we've done featured performances in which we are the focus and also what we call "wallpaper gigs" that we should maintain a low roar with. Also with this experience, we've become experts at coping with many obstacles, but please if you book us make sure that there is some power source within the tristate area for us to use. The group formed about two years ago, but we've finally gotten things together to take the band out to gig because it's been a bit on and off. We love just getting together and laying down some tunes because we just play really well together and we'll be sure to bring a little bit of that to your event.
Additional Booking Notes
A very nice gesture, as stated in the bio, would be knowing where the nearest/most convenient power outlet is even if you don't have an extension cable. Also, keep in mind weather condintions (mostly rain) because we have expensive electric instruments that don't like water very much.
We play a combination of American Songbook standards and various jazz repertoire. Our performance can span about 3 maybe 4 hours if need be.
